"All was just as described on the site and the pictures were very accurate. It was wonderful to have so many pictures of the property prior to going.All details provided were helpful and accurate.The weather for the week we were up was incredible. The drive was easy and not too far to trek. Swimming was amazing, all had turns napping in the hammock and many board games were enjoyed by all! The age range of the cottagers was 9-89 and all had a wonderful time!" 2015
"The cottage was exactly as described. The kayaks appealed to everyone , the location was perfect, our old lazy chocolate lab liked the dog friendly feature :+). Lo's of amazing memories made for sure !! Defiantly would be interested in renting this cottage again next year. I would like to know what the earliest date that we can book ??? We have traveled to Jamaica, Mexico, Arizona, and Florida . Who knew that the best vacation I have ever taken was practically in our back yard !! WoW! If you can please let us know when we can book for next year ??.
The panaromic view was stunning, and we loved having the option on the windy days to go to the other side of the cottage where is had more shelter and kids could still enjoy the water. We have been renting the same cottage for years, and were very nervous about changing but once we arrived our concerns faded immediately. Thank you to the all the cottage owners for sharing their cottages with us.
"The cottage was even better than the images or any image could possibly capture. The view form the main deck was outstanding, the swimming was outstanding. We plan on renting this cottage again if it's available. We had an outstanding vacation, everything was perfect and this cottage location can't be topped. We will continue to come back again and again!"
"This cottage was lovely and clean and spacious. We enjoyed the setting, the patio, the layout of the cottage and the privacy. Renting again next year? Absolutely."
